Spanish fans of both football and music breathed a sigh of relief on Monday after La Liga announced a third set of fixture changes in 12 hours to ensure no matches overlapped with Saturday’s Eurovision Song Contest.
La Liga moved all games involved in the title race, the relegation struggle and the battle for places in next season’s European competitions to 6pm. (1600 GMT) on Saturday.
In the first fixture change, La Liga brought forward Eibar’s match with Barcelona from Sunday to Saturday following Eibar’s relegation. Just over an hour later, the match was moved back to its original time because it transpired the result could have an impact on who else is relegated.
In a third change, La Liga said on Monday it was rescheduling several other matches, including bringing forward Villarreal’s match against Real Madrid from Sunday to Saturday.
